Mandie Tinsley

Accounting + Administration

RICHMOND, VIRGINIA  Mandie Tinsley is happy when it all adds up. The number-crunching got serious when she was a Pirate, studying managerial finance at East Carolina University. She took things step-by-step at MOSAIC, waiting tables in high school, becoming an assistant general manager, then finding her calling by keeping things straight in accounting. But this Pirate’s treasure isn’t hidden away. It’s her family, her friends, and her two fur babies. Happiness multiplied.

Kristin has spent the last decade and a half working with children and adults with Autism and other disabilities, but was ready to try something new. When She isn’t answering the phones or directing traffic here at Mosaic, she can be found hanging with her family.
